Originally from the Midlands, now living near Portsmouth, Matt has played in Belgium, Germany and U.S.A.
When interviewed in April 2020, Matt was asked about his thoughts for the future...
"I have always tried to aim as high as possible and although I'm not saying I am going to go on to coach England, I would still like to coach in the professional game at senior level. My next step, and it’s something I have wanted to do once I've completed my UEFA A license, is to work with a non-league club at senior level as a manager/assistant or coach and help the club progress. Personally, I am aiming to continue developing myself as a coach every day, through reflection on past sessions."
